Receiving and Quarantine

The primary function of the Receiving and Quarantine Facility is to protect the health of the NCI-Frederick animal facilities. This facility holds and tests a variety of animal models that have been requested for importation by investigators to ensure that these strains are not harboring undesirable organisms prior to release into the animal facilities. The staff works closely with investigators to establish a timeline for holding, testing, and rederivation if necessary. The length of quarantine will depend on the source of the shipment and the accompanying health report.

If an animal of undesirable health status is imported (either known or unexpected), the Laboratory Animal Sciences Program offers a Rederivation Service Program that is located within Receiving and Quarantine to facilitate the process and to expedite the release of Specific Pathogen Free animal models into the animal facilities.
